UPDATE: Sony has released this statement:
We temporarily took down the PSN and Qriocity password reset page. Contrary to some reports, there was no hack involved. In the process of resetting of passwords there was a URL exploit that we have subsequently fixed. Consumers who haven’t reset their passwords for PSN are still encouraged to do so directly on their PS3. Otherwise, they can continue to do so via the website as soon as we bring that site back up.
Okay, so you know how we all thought the Great PSN Hacking was over with? Remember how the PSN was slowly returning to its former glory over last weekend? Well I hope you weren’t too optimistic, because Sony’s online gaming network has been compromised again, as of a few hours ago. It was reported that hackers are now able to change passwords of users. All these hackers would need would be your email address and date of birth, but those weren’t–oh, wait…
Sony has, for the moment, pulled the plug on PSN sign-in portals across their various websites. This includes Playstation.com and Qriocity.com. However, you will still be able to sign into PSN via your Playstation 3 or PSP, if you feel so inclined.
In the meantime, change your PSN related E-mail address and password!
Also, on an unrelated note, can you imagine how awkward it’ll be for Sony next month at E3? Awkkkwaaaaarrd.
